The Kennington Oval has a good batting surface with good bounce and carry for the bowlers. The bowlers may have some fun hitting the hard lengths, but the batters are likely to be on top for the majority of the game. The team that wins the toss would prefer to bat first and post a large total because the pitch tends to favor slower bowlers in the second innings. Surrey amassed 228/4 in their first innings against Hampshire at the Oval, the second-highest total by a team this season.
Probable Playing XI: SUR vs SUS
Jason Roy, Will Jacks, Sam Curran, Laurie Evans, Jamie Overton, Sunil Narine, Chris Jordan (c), Jordan Clark, Jamie Smith (wk), Daniel Worrall, Reece Topley
Luke Wright, Tim Seifert (wk), Tom Alsop, Ravi Bopara (c), Delray Rawlins, George Garton, Harrison Ward, Obed McCoy, Archie Lenham, Tymal Mills, Steven Finn
Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter of the match: Tim Seifert
Tim Seifert was drafted into the starting lineup after the in-form Josh Phillipe was forced to withdraw due to commitments with the Australian A side. Despite the fact that Sussex had suffered their third defeat of the season the previous game, it was Seifert’s sensational century that grabbed the attention. The Kiwi batted unbeaten for 100 runs off 56 deliveries, hitting nine boundaries and five towering sixes. The wicketkeeper-batter is going to give the Surrey bowlers fits.
Probable best bowler of the match: Sam Curran
This season, Surrey’s player of the year has been Sam Curran. The all-rounder has been lauded for his prolific season with the bat, but he has also been impressive with the ball. The Englishman has taken 10 wickets in five games, averaging less than eight runs per over. Curran’s exuberance on the field has stood out in a Surrey team full of world-class all-rounders.
